I have an external HDD that being partitioned with ext3 and ntfs. Ext3 is for ubuntu boot from usb, while ntfs is mainly to store my data.

Symptom:
I can’t see my ntfs partition when i plugged in my external HDD into Buffalo NAS. However, ext3 is visible and mounted in /mnt/usbdisk1 also from samba.

Solution:
Manual mount. Latest Linkstation firmware support ntfs by default, it just don’t mount all filesystem from the same usb port.

Identify partitions with ntfs

fdisk -l

or

fdisk -l | grep NTFS

Create mount point

mkdir /mnt/ntfs

Mount ntfs with read write access

mount -t ntfs-3g /dev/sdb3 /mnt/ntfs/

Unmount ntfs

umount /mnt/ntfs/
